After several years of planning, Power opened the doors to a new 33,000 sf corporate headquarters in the City of Chicago. The relocation from the suburbs is a result of employee growth, changing workforce demographics, outdated office space, and most importantly, new construction opportunities within downtown Chicago. “Power has been fortunate to be regarded as a prominent city contractor, helping to transform where Chicagoans live, work, heal, and learn through projects such as Lurie Children’s Hospital, Roosevelt University, Rush University Medical Center, Loyola University, Burberry’s Chicago, and many more,” said Jeff Karp, CEO of Power. The new headquarters is designed to enhance collaboration through open plan design and mobile technology, leverage new technologies such as Building Information Modeling, and take advantage of excellent public transportation that improve employee efficiency like the CTA Blue Line. Power worked closely with the Office of Governor Pat Quinn, World Business Chicago, Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, and the Office of Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Mayor Rahm Emanuel, “It’s great to welcome Power back to Chicago after 80 years. This is a cutting edge company, with deep roots in our city. They are doing great things around the city, constructing wonderful buildings that help Chicagoans enjoy a high quality of life while spurring economic activity and job creation.”
